From the Director's Desk,

It is my prayer that all is ok with you as we have gone through these past weeks dealing with the C-19 virus. I just want to thank all the pastor’s and church leaders for all you have done to continue the Lord’s Kingdom work through these very different, and in many ways, difficult time. As the churches begin to reopen please take all the necessary steps to insure the safety of all our brothers and sisters as they reenter the church building. If any of you need some guidelines for reopening the church I have some here at the office or you can go to this website alabamapublichealth.gov for this information. Just keep up the good work ya’ll are doing and know that we here at the office are praying for you .

Michael James started the Share The Word ministry over 27 years ago. This is the ministry that takes all the churches Bible material and shares it by shipping the material to the people and places that need it. Through these 27 years he has collected and shipped over 800,000 lbs. of Bible material's to many different places and people that was in need of Bible material. Michael was using the companies warehouse were he works at to store and ship the materials. Michael will be retiring on Nov. 1 of this year so he will no longer to collect and ship all this material. So if any of you have any material in your churches , Bibles, VBS, Sunday School, Hymn books that need to be ship please get it to me here at the office so Michael and get it to the right places. If you have any of this material please get it to me by Wednesday, September 30th so I an get it to Michael.

Over these next few weeks I will be looking for another place were we can get our unused Bible material's to people and churches that need this to continue to disciple over brother’s and sister’s in Christ.

When Bro. Paul was our DOM , the Lord put upon his heart to have a Disaster relief team here in the Washington Baptist Association. We began to seek and pray for the Lord’s leadership for this ministry. For over 25 plus years this prayer has continue but no one has really stepped forward to begin this ministry of Disaster Relief. Now a few have went through the training and join other Associations that have Disasters relief teams but we have never been able to establish one here in the Washington Baptist Association.

This past week I have been reminded of John chapter 11 on Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. The Bible tells us Jesus was four days late but he was right on time.

Well The Lord is right on time because he has put in the hearts of some men at Leroy Baptist Church to begin a Disaster Relief team here in the Washington Baptist Association. They have come and talk to me and it is their prayers that this is the beginning of a county wide group of men and women coming together to help others in need when a disaster hits.

This group of men have been trained in mud out, clean out and chain saw. It is their prayers that more volunteers well join them in this ministry. There are many other areas that are available for service, like food preparation, shower operations and washer operations just to name a few.

A Disaster Relief Trailer has been purchased and given to them. They have started to supply the trailer with the necessary tools to go and help but they still need some big tarps to go on roofs that have been damaged. They also need some shovels, brooms, cleaning material that are needed.

Yet, to me and you that the Lord is still working and right on time, this past week, Bro. Mark Presswood, Associational Missionary in the Clarke Baptist Association, called me and said that they have purchased a shower disaster relief trailer and are in the process of getting it ready for service and training their volunteers. But they also need some more men and women to join them for this great ministry of disaster relief.

So after over 20 plus years of prayers God has given us the opportunity to help build a disaster relief team here in the Washington Baptist Association and join the Clarke Baptist Association in this great ministry.

We are beginning the hurricane season and it is both Washington and Clarke Baptist Associations prayers that this equipment will never have to be used, but they need other volunteer's to come and join these teams at get the proper training to be certified to go if a disaster hits.

If anyone would like to on come and join any of these teams and be involved in this great ministry opportunity that the Lord has given us in His own time . Please contact me here at the office.

We have open the Caring Hearts Center and the hours are from 9-3 on Monday - Wednesday - Friday for now. We have taken the necessary steps to keep the volunteer's and the shoppers safe. We will open probably the first week in June for the full business hours. Right now through Memorial Day every thing is 50% off.

The new Washington Baptist trailer has been purchased and arrived. This is the trailer that we use to carry the clothing that we cannot use from Caring Hearts Center to Mobile. It is a 5200 pound double axel trailer with electric brakes. This makes it much safer to haul these clothes and for any of our churches that may need it to use .

Ya’ll just keep on bragging about Jesus to all those that we come in contact with.

Serving Him Together

Bro. Larry Thompson
